ABC has announced that the first-season finale of Combat Hospital has been moved up one week from September 13 to September 6. What this means for its fans is that one episode of the freshman medical drama will go unaired on the network.
The move also doesn't bode well for the future of the show - on US shores at least. Combat Hospital is a Canadian-produced series that also airs on Global Television in Canada. If ABC opts not to move forward with a second season of the show, it is quite possible that Global will pick it up.
A similar situation happened with drama The Listener, which NBC originally started airing for a Summer run in 2009, only to pull it from the schedule after a handful of episodes. The series continued on Canadian airwaves and was recently renewed for a third season.
As it stands, the future of Combat Hospital is unknown at this time, but ABC's decision to leave an episode of its first season on the shelf puts chances of a second one in serious doubt.
This really sucks big time! The show is so good. As an ex-combat triage nurse I can say it was truly realistic. I'm so sad now.

I REALLY want Combat Hospital to come back…
I was in Air Cadets from 2003 until high school graduation, knew some people that worked at KAF, AND a CF-member died in Afghanistan…
I REALLY want to watch this show!

By-the way............I am tired of getting hooked on New Shows that come out and they get cancelled before even being able to grow on viewers. Change the day and time if it does not work the first go round. It makes me mad and I don't want to give any other New shows a chance. It just happened again this years. Tired of the executives making wrong decisions on the future of these shows.

Sometimes TV networks need to give new shows a little more time to let characters develop and to find a proper time slot.I think that if CH were given a little more time,it could grow into an Emmy winning,long lived show.
